Okay, get this, straight from the developer…

“inXile Entertainment is proud to announce an unprecedented crowdfunding offer: anyone who backs The Bard’s Tale IV on Kickstarter in the first 24 hours of the campaign will receive a FREE copy of inXile’s Wasteland 2, or CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher, or The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings (until 6/3 at 6am, PST).”

This offer is “For all backers of The Bard’s Tale IV at the $20 Reward Tier and above. Wasteland 2 will be delivered on Steam or DRM-Free on after the Kickstarter campaign. The Witcher and The Witcher 2 will be delivered on”

The Bard’s Tale IV is a single-player, party-based dungeon crawler with plenty of exploration and combat. There will also be challenging puzzles and riddles.

The game is being built for PC, Mac and Linux with Unreal Engine IV. It will support English, French, German, Russian, Spanish, and Polish.  

You’ll find a lot more info on the Kickstarter page. If the game reaches the $1.25 million base goal, inXile will kick in (pun intended) at least $1.25 million of its own money.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
